Well this is going to make those X Factor live shows extra interesting/unbearably awkward.

US singer Adam Lambert has launched another blistering attack on his co-judge Iggy Azalea after calling her a "diva" last week.

The 34-year-old had some brutally honest words for the 26-year-old Aussie rapper during his interview with 2DayFM's Rove and Sam this morning.

"I've found some sort of common ground with Iggy. We get along, but I've watched her and observed her with other people, and she's tricky," Adam started innocently enough. "She's kind of a complicated kind of girl."

But wait, here it is! Adam's zinger: "Maybe she's threatened. She doesn't really know anything about singing."

Adam speculated that Iggy is "embarrassed" that she can't give the kind of "technical" feedback he and Guy Sebastian can.

He wasn't done yet. The former American Idol star also suggested that the arrival of Mel B as the "underdog" judge may have made her extra "nervous". That's one way to look at it!

In another interview today, Adam told NovaFM's Fitzy and Wippa that Iggy isn't taking the mentoring part of the show seriously.

"I'm like, 'maybe the people you're mentoring might be kind of important, just a thought ... isn't that why you're here?'" he said.

It's got to the point where members of her group have even asked him for help with their song choices.

"I don't know if I should talk about it – but they came into my dressing room and were like 'What should we do?', so I just tried to help, off the record," he said. "Which I'm probably not supposed to do."

Iggy's not exactly making friends on the show. Both Guy and Adam have complained that she arrives hours late to the set. For Guy, 35, it's turned into a toxic relationship.

"We're just not similar people at all and I definitely have to bite my tongue," Guy told The Daily Telegraph. "I've said a lot of things in my head.

"She's at me all the time and I don't know what it is because she doesn't go after Mel and Adam."

Mel B has denied claims she is feuding with Iggy, despite the Seven Network's attempts to build up some kind of woman versus woman judging panel feud. How very original.

One thing we're not hearing much of is Iggy's own point of view. Perhaps a face-to-face truce with Guy is in order? Or a tearful TV interview perhaps?
